Scotty Walden is the head football coach at Austin Peay University. He's the youngest head football coach in Division One at 31 years old. After a football career that saw him play quarterback in college at the Division Three level, he went into coaching and became a college football head coach at just 26 years old with East Baptist University (D-III). At the time of his hiring to East Baptist, he was the youngest college football head coach in America. 

After one season at East Baptist, Walden became the receivers coach at Division 1 Southern Miss. In 2019, he was promoted to Co-Offensive Coordinator and in 2020, became the interim head coach for four games before taking the Austin Peay job in October 2020. 

Today on the podcast, we talk to Scotty Walden about coaching spring football games in 2021 at Austin Peay, how the Lord led him through his coaching decisions, why unity is the secret to success in college football and how he's handled being the youngest head coach in division one college football.
